As home to the world's most prestigious Fringe Festival, Edinburgh has cultivated a reputation for being at the centre of the arts. The Traverse Theatre works to extend that reputation throughout the year, championing creative talent by placing powerful and contemporary theatre at the heart of cultural life.
Through their diverse programme, the theatre aims to both entertain and stir conversation, reflecting the times and provoking crucial debate amongst their audiences. Their strong emphasis on fostering talent has seen them launch the careers of some of the UK's most celebrated writers including David Greig, David Harrower and Zinnie Harris.
